Buying jewelry can be a tricky ethical minefield for consumers to find their way through. While the choices in ethically-sourced gemstones and recycled metals are growing, there is often still a lack of ethical options from the broader jewelry industry.
What does it mean to buy jewelry that is responsibly sourced?
Traditional methods of mining gemstones and precious metals have too often led to appalling conditions for the miners, exploitation of people in developing countries, deforestation and the use of dangerous chemicals. Responsible sourcing means purchasing products that are ethical to both people and the environment.
For us at Trios Studio, this means using Fair Trade Gems and recycled metals whenever and wherever possible, and supporting education and health in mining communities. It is our mission to help reduce negative impacts on the environment, eliminate exploitation of mine workers, be transparent in our supply chain and educate consumers whenever possible.
At Trios Studio, we are committed to giving people the choice to support ethical practices, and we have been since we started.
It is our responsibility as consumers to push for responsible sourcing in everything we buy. Where you choose to spend your money matters. With the help of our clients, we can help change the way the jewelry industry does business globally.
If you're looking for jewelry you can feel good about, come visit us at Trios Studio and see how we do things differently.
